It was a beautiful October day.  A huge tent was set up.  Preparations were made. Then it started. Musicians sang and they played. Boaters docked and came ashore.  People came from all over the region.  Our community gathered at the Levee.  Artisans shared the beauty of their art and passion. The smell of great food filled the air.  Kids tried their favorites at the musical instrument petting zoo.


Aspiring musicians learned about the trade from a roundtable with touring professionals.  Kids tried the slackline and did arts and crafts.  A real alpaca stood guard at the foot of the huge tent.  Some sat at picnic tables out in the sun.  Some preferred the energy inside the tent.  Great coffee, and excellent beer and wine complimented the festivities.  As the day progressed and the bands lifted the energy higher and higher, people started to dance.  By the evening the whole place was tapping their feet to the beat, the dance floor was crowded, and the whole Levee was alive.  This is true community.  This is what Live @ the Levee is all about.  We'll see you for our Holiday Edition on Saturday December 20.

Jake Ilika & Friends

Former Winona resident and musician Jake Ilika has established himself in the Minnesota music scene over the last few years, performing regularly across the state and upper midwest.  His style of folk, blues and americana blends well with a roots rock edge and country overtone.  Joining him will be local musicians from The Old Fashioneds Zac Barbieur (drums) and Dave Casey (bass), Joel Ward (Ilika Ward Duo), and more special guests throughout the night.

Combine their signature, passion filled country rock sound with an energy that burns brighter and hotter than the “The Star of the North” and the result is a Maiden Dixie show. Just ask any of their fans at any concert venue on their 2014 tour schedule, or better yet come see it for yourself!
